Rise Armament, a manufacturer and supplier of AR components and firearms based in Broken Arrow, OK, recently completed a major facility expansion to address the company’s rapid growth. “It’s exciting to be in a position that demands facility expansion,” said Matt Torres, President of Rise Armament. “This advancement will undoubtedly help us take the next step in meeting needs of our valued customers and our company objectives.”

Part of the success can be found at a number of sporting goods counters, where the company’s recently introduced interactive display allows shooters to give the Rise Armament RA-140, RA-434 and RA-535 triggers a dry-fire test drive before buying. The display helps promote the company’s lineup, but also equips retailers with yet another tool to help educate new shooters on aftermarket gear selection.

“Having the ability to put our trigger system in the hands of a potential customer and have them experience the quality and performance of our product is huge,” Torres said. “We feel that this will undoubtedly result in more Rise products being sold at the retail level.” Retailers with a minimum qualifying order can receive the fully assembled display, equipped with an RA-140 Trigger, RA434 Trigger and the high-performance RA-535 trigger.

The company’s plant now encompasses more than 55,000 square feet of manufacturing, shipping, product design and operations space. The firm specializes in the design and manufacturing of AR-15s, receivers, triggers, barrels and muzzle devices for civilian, military and law enforcement use. All its products are designed and produced in the United States, manufactured according to strict AS9100- and ISO9001 2008-certified procedures and come with a 30-day money back or replacement guarantee.  The company is ITAR and CAGE Code registered and a 10-percent discount is available to all active and retired military and law enforcement officers.



Are Percussion Revolvers and Single-Shot Muzzleloaders Obsolete?

It’s known that firearms can serve for a long time after they’re no longer cutting edge. Flintlocks held on long into the percussion era. During the American Civil War, plenty of cavalry units, especially local militias, turned up with single-shot pistols despite Colt’s revolvers having been on the market for a while by then.

Solving Issues with Brass Casings

Recently, while shooting a Norinco SKS, I experienced a failure to go into battery. Upon removing the cartridge, I found the round to be “shrouded” by another brass casing.
